annectens Humbert & Saussure, 1869b: 677  -678 [ Polydesmus  ( Stenonia  )].

Les Moluques (Musée de Genève). Unspecified number of ♂ and ♀.

Carl (1902) described and illustrated the gonopod based on an “Originalexemplar.” The MHNG collection contains three card-mounted specimens and one in alcohol under the name Platyrrhachus annectens  used by Carl. The one ♂ and two ♀ card-mounted specimens each have a label with the sex, “Odontodesmus annectens  ” and “Moluques” on the pin but there are three different abbreviations for the authors. The specimen in alcohol has a similar label but in a different handwriting, and is indicated to be a type. These specimens are obviously syntypes. An undated label placed with the specimen in alcohol by Hoffman indicates that he thought it belonged to the genus Psaphodesmus  , but this opinion was not published. The generic placement is uncertain.
